Buxton Puppet Festival
Funny Wonders co-presents the Buxton Puppet Festival with the Buxton Opera House. In particular we help promote the festival and to get the local community involved with the festival and even to perform in it!
We have run projects to create gigante puppets to parade at the start of the festival, puppets to parade in the Buxton Carnival to promote the festival and to make puppets to put up around Buxton during the festival.
We have worked with local schools and community groups such as Brownies to help create a piece of puppet theatre to perform and with our own Youth Groups and Infant School Puppet Clubs to produce shows for the festival.
We also run workshops and host national and international puppeteers and theatre groups who come to Buxton for the Puppet Festival.
